Going through our archives I’m always amazed at how many different people we’ve talked to and all of the incredible music we’ve explored. One of my favorite topics was to discuss the life, career, and music of Dr. David N. Baker. I had the pleasure of playing in David’s band for 5 years at Indiana University, and for many years touring the country and the world off and on as a member of the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra.
In this episode of Have You Heard, we talk about the career of David Baker and play music from the 2005 Buselli-Wallarab Jazz Orchestra album, Basically Baker Volume 1. (Incidentally, Basically Baker Volume 2 was released in September of 2016 on the Patois Records label).
